Chasetown 2 Stamford 2 - Report

After an enforced 14-day isolation, Chasetown made the worst possible start. With just six minutes on the clock, Rob Morgan fired beyond Curtis Pond.

It got worse for the Scholars when Pond conceded a penalty and Morgan stepped up to shoot high beyond the Chase keeper who went the right way.

Chasetown went close at the start of the second half with keeper Danny Haystead saving well from leading scorer Joey Butlin, who then put a free header wide.

Just after the hour, Oli Hayward was brought down inside the box and Jack Langston reduced the deficit from the penalty spot.

Langston was then a whisker away from an equaliser with a volley just wide of the post

Chasetown got even closer when Butlin shot on the turn and the ball rebounded off the post and luckily straight into the arms of Haystead.

It was no shock when Chasetown finally pulled level. A cross from the left found the head of Langston who superbly steered the ball beyond Haystead’s despairing dive.

At the start of stoppage time, Stamford full back Joe Burgess struck the post with a long range effort. Then the Scholars almost won it when substitute Josh Cooke drilled over a low cross and a bobble meant Liam Kirton couldn’t connect fully for the winner.
